The extraordinary art collection created by the late Dr. Albert C. Barnes has moved from his suburban mansion in Merion, PA to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia. WRTI's Susan Lewis looks at the role of the new Barnes in continuing the legacy of its founder.   

We hear from architect Todd Williams, landscape architect Laurie Olin, Barnes President Derek Gillman, and Joseph Neubauer, vice chair of the Barnes Foundation's Board of Trustees.
